Advantages of water energy
Water is the elixir of life without water the earth cannot exist. Every human being needs water to do each and every day to day activity. Water is useful to all as it is and also it is nourishing the human life with the energy it has by generating electricity. Directly or indirectly water is used in many ways. The potential energy from water is converted into mechanical energy and the mechanical energy is in turn converted into electrical energy and this is being distributed to different locations to meet out their different power needs.Electricity is produced from water in many different ways. But the major method is by constructing dams and building power stations with turbines and generators to control the flow of water. The power generated from water is called as “HYDRO POWER”. In most of the countries hydropower is the main source of electricity because of many factors including cost of production.
